Solar prom animation, 06-27-20

Post by ammonthenephite » Sun Jun 28, 2020 8:35 pm

Edit - looks like the embed stuff worked, thanks Montana for showing me that! I just need to work on getting my gifs smaller now so they download a faster. Apologies for the long load time:(

Attempting to link a gif from flickr for the first time, so here's hoping it works:)

1 hour time-lapse using 120x10s videos with 20 seconds between each. Had average seeing, but more importantly I finally had both consistent seeing and consistently absent cloud cover, which I've found makes it a lot easier since each frame then has consistent exposure and focus. So much to learn with all of this, but that's part of what makes it fun...

I have never learned how to embed videos here either. That is an impressive animation. The proms and all of those spicules move as if dancing to some music we cannot hear.

Amazing spicule detail in this, some of the best I have ever seen, well done :hamster: :bow

the only thing I'm not so keen on is it seems that the animation goes forwards then reverses? rather than looping. Am I correct in thinking that? The only problem with doing forward and reverse means that very quickly the viewer can't remember which way the video is playing and it makes it really hard to follow plasma flow which is the most important factor on the Sun. If we end up thinking the plasma is flowing upwards that indicates an eruption but if the video is just playing in reverse then it isn't an eruption at all but normal downward flow of material. I hope this makes sense :)

I managed to somehow overlook this one.

Stunning animation. Very nicely done!

Ya, it was an option in PIPP when stitching the timelapse together, but knowing that people prefer it not do this is the kind of feedback I like to get! Next time I'll just have it pause a the end then restart at the beginning again. Thanks!

Stunning animation!

I agree with Alexandra in keeping the animation going forward only.

Best regards,

Hi James,

WOW, well deserved SPOD with that annimation. It is great to see those spicules dancing as well as the surface of the Sun boiling
